I am a mum of 2 young children, Stanley is 4 now and Nancy is 2 and a half. Life as a mum hasn't all been plain sailing and both kids have challenged me with feeding and drinking issues at times. Store bought, pre-filled pouches helped Stanley through teething and Nancy through her refusal to drink anything stage after she stopped breast feeding. Pouches have helped us through illnesses, car journeys and have always been a lunch box staple. In the early days of weaning I also found them fantastic for feeding using a spoon whilst out and about.
I have always wished that I could fill pouches myself with the kid's favourite yogurts or my own purees in those early days of weaning. When my son needed antibiotics it would have been great to be able to put the nasty medicine into the pouch along with some healthy fruit. It could have saved a lot of tears a couple of years ago.
One of the the things that always bothered me about the pre-filled pouches was that they are non recyclable. I was aware of how many used pouches must be thrown away each year and now that I had 2 children I would be adding even more to the mountain.
After having Nancy and approaching weaning a 2nd time I started to search if a reusable pouch existed on the market and found a few, but none really caught my eye. Some required their own filling stations, others were too large for small hands and tummies and most didn't stand up whilst you filled them. I found a few cute ones in the US and Australia but they were expensive and had very small openings which made me wonder if they would really get clean. Mostly I really felt that there was nothing on the market that would appeal to a toddler / child so I started to think.......what if I made some myself.
Fortunately I have 15 years experience in sourcing and development so I started to design the perfect pouch for my children. It's taken me a while to perfect the Nom Nom Reusable Pouch and find the best suppliers to support me but I've done it. I am really pleased with our first product and my kids think it's fantastic. What more can a mother want!
I really hope you will love your Nom Nom Kids Reusable Pouch as much as we do.
